Although these issues were fixed in the revised Samsung Galaxy Fold design, the device remains far less resilient than most standard smartphones—prompting Samsung to release a video showing fold owners how to care for their device, while launching the ‘premier service’ to provide on-demand support. Regardless, even the ‘fixed’ version of the Galaxy Fold still has its issues, including the recently described pixel clustering issue found by a TechCrunch reviewer. With arguably two iterations of test devices now shipped, Samsung arguably has enough experience under its belt to produce something much more resilient, and potentially cheaper too. With the current Galaxy Fold coming in a hefty $1,980, first adopters are undoubtedly paying down Samsung’s hefty research and development costs. With a sturdier, smaller design, as well as a lower price tag, Samsung might be looking to make a Fold successor that appeals to a much larger consumer demographic, unlike the ostensibly niche current generation Fold. What do you think Samsung will change with its next-generation Fold device? Let us know your thoughts in the comments below.
